Altintop doubtful for Turkey’s Euro 2008 campaign

FC Bayern Munich expect to be without Hamit Altıntop for the rest of the season – putting a question mark against the midfielder’s participation in Turkey‘s Euro 2008 campaign.

Altıntop, 25, broke a metatarsal bone in his right foot during his country’s friendly against Belarus on Wednesday. What is certain is that he faces between six and eight weeks on the sidelines after surgery today – ruling him out of Bayern’s UEFA Cup quarter-final against Getafe CF and probably out of the remainder of their Bundesliga title challenge too.

“It is very doubtful that he will play again this term. This is a real shock, particularly as he has been in great shape recently.” said Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld
